Just an outstanding reading - I thought at first the reader was going a bit fast, but soon I adapted to the pace. This is a vast improvement over the botched experiment on "Ulysses", that must have turned Mr. joyce over in his grave. So five glorious stars.

Read way too fast...
Were you in a hurry ?
Subject: Very good recording
Just listened to this, right after listening to Hugh McGuire's version. This is a very good recording, easily on par with that one. The reader is male and Irish and very expressive. He sometimes speaks quite fast but is never difficult to follow, at least not for me (an American unfamiliar with Irish accents). Good sound quality and in one section a rather nice effect where the voices gradually recede as they call goodbye. One mispronunciation I noticed: "impetus" for "impetuous."
Annoying gay and snobish voice and he talks to fast.
Subject: The Dead - James Joyce
An excelent character study that leads the reader smoothly from one emotion to another.
Well read by a single reader.
